Things to do at Makumu Private Game Lodge
Klaserie Private Nature Reserve, South Africa

Situated in the Klaserie Private Nature Reserve which forms part of the greater Kruger National Park, Makumu Private Game Lodge offers a range of guided game viewing activities.

Klaserie Wildlife

There are no fenced borders separating the Klaserie from the Kruger which means there is a constant flow of animals into the area and it won’t take longer before you encounter a long list sightings, from prides of lions and packs of hyenas, to herds of African tuskers, buffalos, and many more.

Guided 4x4 game drives top the agenda at Makumu Lodge and depart promptly in the early morning and late afternoon when the sun is not as fierce and the energy levels of animals are at their highest. 

Step Out into the Savannah

At Makumu Private Lodge you can also embark on daily walking safaris led by experienced (and armed) trackers who will introduce you to the smaller creatures of the reserve. 

You’ll quickly discover all the wonderful and intricate details that you would typically miss while seated on a 4x4, such as footprints, tree markings and folds in the grass that indicate that an animal has passed through the area. 

Since you can be a lot stealthier on foot, these walks come highly recommended for keen bird watchers who’d like to tick off a few sightings during their stay. 

Memorable Makumu Meals

Mealtimes at Makumu Private Game Lodge form an important part of your experience and the staff have pretty much perfected the process, be it breakfast, lunch or dinner. Each is carefully planned out and exquisitely executed from start to finish with the cuisine alone being an adventure in its own right.

 After a long day out in the bush, those hearty feasts served by the roaring fire on the elevated boma will be something to really look forward to, especially with their stellar selection of South African wines.
